DIDATTICA DI ECCELLENZA - MATHEMATICS OF URBAN MORPHOLOGY

ore 10:00 on Zoom

We need to build new cities for an additional 2.5 billion urban dwellers
by 2050. To build, or drive, them nicely for humans’ life, we first need
to know them. The use of algorithms and mathematical approaches for
the study of urban forms becomes more and more useful and
sometimes indispensable for the understanding of social, economics,
behavioural and spatial urban phenomena. The terrific availability of
data is continuously growing and represents a precious opportunity of
analysis for the extrapolation of information and configuration of
models, and eventually theories. The course proposes an introduction
and examples on how to use algorithms, fractals, cellular automata,
networks analysis for the study of urban forms.
